Cleartronic, Inc. (CLRI): Enabling Public Safety Agencies to Achieve High Performance through InteroperabilityThursday, October 16th, 2014
With lives often at stake, effective emergency response requires multiple government and non-government agencies working together in a coordinated, collaborative
environment. That makes achieving interoperability between their communication systems vital. The variety of personnel and communications equipment
involved makes a high-performance solution mandatory and yet, an extremely difficult goal to achieve.
When an emergency occurs, the responding agencies need to quickly establish communication to ensure a coordinated response to minimize the loss of life and
property. Because of the high stakes and multiple parties involved, public
safety agencies have sought out innovative ways to solve the problem of interoperability. In the United States, extreme weather events leading to natural disasters, threats of viral outbreaks, or dealing with a potential terrorist threat all provide object lessons for the need of rapid inter-agency communication.
Existing communications systems represent a considerable investment and have been fine tuned and customized over the years to support the daily operations of the concerned agency or business for that matter. Increasing interoperability by replacing existing systems with a new platform would be an intensely costly investment. The best approach is to leave the existing systems in place, simply providing a layer of technology integration to allow inter-system communication.
VoiceInterop, Inc., a wholly-owned Cleartronic subsidiary, is a premier provider of unified communications solutions that provides this layer of integration for customers to seamlessly link a wide variety of otherwise incompatible communications devices and networks, including two-way radios, cellular phones, PDAs, and tablet PC device. The company already has a diverse customer base of more than 200 companies, including emergency services agencies, airport management, and colleges and universities. VoiceInterop is a leader in application development, systems integration, services, and an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for interoperability-enabling solutions.
Cleartronic is continually developing new product and service applications that address consumer and enterprise-wide markets. The company’s acquisition and growth strategy is driven by identifying problems resulting from change such as unfilled market needs or gaps, and monetizing solutions of those problems by the appropriate technology. Recently, Cleartronic, Inc. announced a licensing agreement with Collabria LLC, allowing products such as VoiceInterop to be enhanced with the integration of Collabria’s ReadyOp communications platform.
ReadyOp provides government agencies, hospitals, first responders, companies and unified commands with multiple communication capabilities and options in a single, secure website. ReadyOp is designed to support daily operations, special event planning, incident management and emergency response and recovery:
With the advent of technologies from Cleartronic and its recent partnerships that enable collaboration and coordination, agencies and enterprises are no longer limited to information harbored within their silo of operability. Where once it was acceptable to function as an autonomous organization, recent disastrous events, such as the highly damaging Hurricane Sandy of 2012, have brought to light the deadly consequences associated with the operating model that any one agency can work in a vacuum.
